Re-framing problems as challenges instantly makes things more actionable and do-able.
A challenge evokes a call-to-action. It invites you to take care of it.
Re-framing problems as challenges puts the control right back in your lap. Challenge means there’s opportunity.
“The problem is that I’m weak.” No, you don’t have a weakness problem…you have a challenge to get under the bar and build some strength and size.
“I have a weight problem.” No, you don’t have a weight problem…you have a challenge to lose fat and get lean.
“I have a problem with consistency.” No, you don’t have a problem with consistency…you have a challenge to do what it takes to become the type of person who is consistent.
Don’t look at life as something that happens to you, look at life as something that happens for you.
Challenges are growth opportunities, as they give you a chance to learn, to become more resilient, and to become stronger. They give you a chance to become who you want to be.
Start shifting your mindset and re-frame your problems as challenges.
